asia plane with 162 souls on board that went down over the weekend. the passenger jet lost contact with air traffic control just 40 minutes into the flight from indonesia to singapore. now, officials are scouring the ocean floor, where our chief foreign correspondent terry moran is on the ground in singapore, where families are demanding answers. >> reporter: it's day three in the desperate search for air asia flight 8501 day three of the deepening mystery surrounding a plane that seemingly vanished carrying 162 people on board, including 16 children. now, the search is ramping up expanding in the waters of the java sea growing to 13 search areas. seven countries all joining in now to locate the missing jet liner. the families of those on that fateful flight grieving desperate, all gathering in airports in indonesia and in singapore. here in singapore's airport, term that twonathat nallterminal two
12:41 am
here is where the vigil is taking place. no news yet. but a prediction from the head of indonesia's national search and rescue agency. they currently suspect the plane is located on the ocean floor. >> a deep sense of depression here, but we'll stay strong and we our first priority is to look after the families and do whatever we can. >> reporter: search teams have less than 30 days now to find the black boxes, filled with data on what happened to that plane. they signal their location but only until their batteries die out. >> probably not going to take more than six to eight days to get all the ships in there that are going to be needed to listen for it. if it is down there and pinging, they should be able to find it. >> reporter: but so far, coral mistaken for oil slicks has only led to false hope. >> we actually divided ourselves into two ships.
12:42 am
>> reporter: it is a massive effort. malaysia, australia and singapore all joining indonesia in his search. the u.s. is sending the uss sampson. and south korea and china are expected to join in tomorrow. there's at least 18 ships, and 29 aircraft. two sets of underwater locator beacon used to scour the seabed. while so much of what happened to this plane is shrouded in mystery, here's what we do know. on sunday morning, the jet takes off. as it soars at 32,000 feet the plane encounters severe weather over the java sea. the pilot radios in, requesting to change its altitude to 38,000 feet. air traffic control tells him not to but he appears to climb anyway. >> the captain is like a captain of the ship. he is directly responsible for the safety of that aircraft and the passengers on board. so, if he needs to move that airplane and put that airplane
12:43 am
somewhere, he is not going to ask permission. he is going to do it. >> reporter: then, air traffic control suddenly loses communications and by 6:18 the plane was no longer visible on the radar. vanished into thin air, 162 people mostly indonesian, all gone. air asia which is based out of malaysia, has had a good safety record and the pilot was experienced. >> i think in 13 years, we carried 220 million people. until today, we have never lost a life. >> reporter: of course, the harrowing question remains. how could something like this happen. >> a bomb could go off, you could fly into a thunderstorm. and until we find something of the airplane and know where to look for the black boxes, it's just a puzzle. >> reporter: many are calling for real-time gps monitoring and the international regulatory commission is studying the idea. but monitoring a plane miles in the air is much more difficult than tracking a cell phone. >> we need to look for other ways to do it. one of those ways would be
12:44 am
through satellites. we would always have a good idea, in relative terms, where an aircraft might be anywhere in the world. >> reporter: all of this is eerily similar to another missing plane that crashed just this year malaysia flight 370, which went down in march. but there are marked differences between the cases of flight 370 and this one. >> both have disappeared, but they disappeared in very different places very different circumstances. we're only two dales into this mishap. >> reporter: malaysian airlines was widely criticized. this time, asia airlines' ceo has been live tweeting and they released the manifesto hours after the plane crashed. experts hope this search will be easier because think time they are looking in the relatively small java sea. >> it's a shallow sea. it's not like out in the indian ocean, it's so deep that it goes to the limits of our ability to
12:45 am
search the ocean bottom. the java sea is only 150 feet deep. >> reporter: foul play was initially expected in malaysia flight. something more sinister can't be ruled out. >> highly unlikely. but it's possible. we don't have the airplane yet. we have to look at other things. >> reporter: but for now the world and these families wait for news that may not come any time soon. they scan the man any fest looking for familiar names. some are stoic. >> but it's life. we don't know what's going to happen. >> reporter: for others, it's too much. the dreams of so many in limbo now. louise waits here for word of her fiance and five members of his family. they were going on vacation. >> it was supposed to be their last vacation before us got married. which was to be his last vacation with his family. >> reporter: but there are the miracles, too. the lucky ones. 23 people did not get on that
12:46 am
plane who were scheduled to. >> we were supposed to be on that flight on the 28th. it's eerie. >> reporter: this family can't believe it. ten of them -- ten -- were supposed to fly here to singapore for new year's eve, but they all arrived late at the airport. here they are, holding their intin rares, and they missed the flight. my mother can't stop crying one texted us, adding this is a special christmas gift from god that we missed the flight. and on facebook prayers of gratitude from chandra. he was supposed to fly with his wife and three kids, but canceled when his father fell ill. "thank you jesus," he posted in indonesia. "your plan is so beautiful. our family avoided awful changer." for those who give thanks and for those who wait here these long hours are really about life. about how precious it is. every moment. and how fragile. >> our thanks to terry moran in
